The Top 10 books I absolutely NEED to read before the end of 2016 comes around

title.PNG

All year, I’ve had a list of books that I ABSOLUTELY NEED TO GET TO. You know the sorts. The ones with loads of hype AND actually sound amazing. The ones that have been sat on your shelves waiting for months. The ones that have been on every TBR possible and yet still haven’t been read.

WELL HERE’S ANOTHER TBR FOR THEM.

Because surely my knack for failing TBRs will leave me this time and actually let me read all the books listed…right? 

Now, this list is just from the books I own. Not the books I intend to buy. If they were on the list too, you’d be reading this list until George RR Martin decides to publish his next book (come on MR Martin – we’re waiting!!).

So here are the top 10 books I absolutely need to read before the end of 2016!

The Mini-Missions That Have Suddenly Taken Over My Summer TBR

TBR mini missions

So about a month ago, I wrote a blog post about my summer TBR.

I don’t usually make TBR’s because I don’t stick to them. Well surprise surprise, there’s some changes to be made to mine already.

Typical.

The other post still stands though. I’m still trying to follow the original TBR. But I’ve come up with some small “goals” to achieve, which I’m calling mini-missions, because that somehow sounds more motivating.

Probably because I want to live in a fantasy story and giving myself missions makes it sounds that little bit more epic.

So here are the mini-missions that have changed my TBR already!

Can’t Decide What To Read Next? Don’t Worry, I’ve Got You Covered

decide what to read

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a very indecisive person when it comes to choosing what book to read next.

I finish one book, and get that wonderful feeling of being able to choose my next book.

And then I look at my shelves and get a bit overwhelmed by just how many books I have to choose from – purely because I feel like reading them ALL right this very second.

So how do you choose which book to read next?

Doodling All The Book Series I Need To Continue/Finish

doodling book series

As I’ve said countless times, I have this really bad habit of starting book series and then taking years to finish them.

So much so, that now I have over 20 book series on the go.

Wow.

I made a list of all the series I’ve started so that I can keep track of every single one, and when it comes to buying more books, I’ll be more likely to look at the list and choose a series to continue.

But why just make it a list? 

This “list” of mine turned into a doodle session. I love making my notebook look more interesting – I showed you guys in my review process how I like to draw the book titles for my review notes. So this time, instead of this being a mere list that I wouldn’t look at again, I decided to draw the titles as book spines, and every time I finish a series, the spine will be coloured in.

In the second half of the post I’ll list all the book series I need to finish – split into three sections. Just so that you guys can see more clearly 🙂

So let me show you the book series I need to finish…and how I doodled!

That Huge Build Up Of Books That I Hope To Read This Summer

summer TBR

You know when you sort of keep buying books and you really want to read them all but you don’t know when that’ll happen so you keep planning to read them soon and then you end up in a huge tangle of “oh my goodness what do I read now?!?”

Well, that’s basically what this post is.

I suppose this is a TBR, since I’m actually planning on reading these.

But these books are the books I hope to read this summer – well, all the books that I OWN that I plan to read. No doubt I’ll end up buying more. And obviously I’ll be reading more than just these books.

This was originally going to be a Top 10 post, but …well…there’s more than ten 😀

But anyway, I’m rambling.

Here are the books I own that I hope to read this Summer!

TBR Unhaul -Brutally Kicking Books Off My Goodreads To Read List

tbr unhaul

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m a person that loves organizing my things.

Well, that’s probably not the one thing you should know, but it’s a thing.

Anyway, because of this, every so often I feel the need to go through my Goodreads account and sort everything out – make sure all my books have ratings (because sometimes I forget to do the starts when I add my review), adjust my favourite shelf, all that kind of stuff.

And one of the things I like to do is go through my “to-read” list and delete any that…well…that don’t belong there any more.

So here are the books that I deleted from my Goodreads TBR!

My “Books To Buy One Day” List

books to buy

Hello bookworms! Hope you’re all having a good day 🙂

Today’s post idea is a bit random.

Basically, I have this list written down in my notebook of all the books I plan on buying one day in the future. Whether that be soon, or in a year’s time (if I still want it then). And when I get one of them, I highlight it to cross it off.

So this post…is pretty much just that list!

I wasn’t sure whether this would be interesting or not, but I did a poll on twitter asking whether people would be interested, and most voted Yes. Also I figured this would be interesting to look back on at the end of the year to see how many I managed to tick off.

So here it is!

I’ll split this into 3 sections: 

1. Books that are already released

2. Books that are not yet released

3. Books that are released, but I’m waiting for the paperback to be released.

So really, this is like a huge TBR/anticipated releases mash up post, right?

Also, since I updated this list at the start of February, some of these books I might already have – these books will be shown with a strike-through.

This is going to be quite a long post I think, so get comfy and enjoy!
